Be entertained by our turtles, pond sliders, button quail, stunning floral displays, and, of course, twelve native species of colorful butterflies! Amanda Maples, HBG Horticulture Specialist, and Soozi Pline, Director of Education, will greet you ready to answer questions about the plants and animals that call the Purdy Butterfly House home! See the larger than life Honey Bee and Orchid sculptures in the Purdy Butterfly House each made entirely from LEGO® bricks.

This year the Education Department is hosting a Butterfly Bash in the Anderson Education Center Classroom complete with butterfly-themed craft activities for children of all ages and a hands-on discovery area.


The Purdy Butterfly House is open May through September annually.
